The TUF series delivers a \"tough\" image. With the unique design & high quality components (military-standard), TUF series is born for pursuing the preeminent stability, all-round compatibility, and extreme durability. This motherboard supports the Intel Core i7 processors in LGA1366 package with integrated memory controller to support 3-channel (6 DIMMs) DDR3 memory. Supports Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) with a system bus of up to 6.4 GT/s and a max bandwidth of up to 25.6 GB/s. Intel Core i7 processor is one of the most powerful and energy efficient CPUs in the world. The Intel X58 Express chipset is one of the most powerful chipset designed to support the Intel Core i7 processors with LGA1366 package and Intel next generation system interconnect interface, Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI), providing improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. It also supports up to 36 PCI Express 2.0 lanes providing better graphics performance. The motherboard supports DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of 1866/1800/1600/1333/1066 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The triple-channel DDR3 architecture enlarges the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance. SABERTOOTH X58 brings you the multi-GPU choice of either SLI or CrossFireX. The motherboard features the most powerful Intel X58 platform to optimize PCIe allocation in multiple GPU configurations.
